WWE 205 Live Results (12/05): Gulak Conducts The Zo Train
Wednesday, December 6, 2017
The show starts with a video package recapping the events from last night's RAW with Enzo hyping up the Zo Train. We also see highlights from the Fatal 4 Way Match between Mustafa Ali, Drew Gulak, Cedric Alexander, and Tony Nese where Gulak was able to pick up the sneaky win to move on to face Rich Swann to determine the next number one contender. That match will take place next week on RAW.
Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness welcome us to the show as they preview some of tonight's matches. It will be Rich Swann vs. Tony Nese and Gran Metalik vs. The Brian Kendrick.
Drew Gulak makes his way down to the ring and he has Enzo's mic with him. Gulak says that he wants everybody to jump aboard the "Drew Train" while Enzo is away tonight. Gulak hypes his recent wins and looks to continue his Power Point presentation. Cedric Alexander comes out and interrupts Drew Gulak. Gulak says that had Alexander not interrupted him, he would have found out one of the slides are "Strong Leaders Delegate" and that is exactly what Gulak is doing tonight. He is delegating his match to Noam Dar and Noam Dar makes his way down to the ring.
Drew Gulak joins the commentary table for this match and he talks about how Dar is the baby of the group and how Dar wants to prove himself to the group.
Cedric Alexander vs. Noam Dar: Dar initially gets things going, but Alexander quickly drops him with a flurry of moves, then goes for a pin, but only a two count. Dar goes to the outside and Gulak tells him he needs to pay attention to his opponent as he dodges Alexander and drops him on the floor with a kick to the face. Dar with a high-five to Gulak then he tosses his opponent back in the ring and goes for a pin, but only a two count. Alexander drops Dar with a big elbow then goes up top to the apron and hits a huge springboard clothesline, he goes for a pin, but only a two count.
Alexander pumps himself up and he looks to finish off Dar, who ends up laying in some forearm shots. Dar catches a kick by Alexander and throws it into the ropes. Dar kicks the other leg of Alexander. Dar goes up to the top rope, but Gulak starts yelling at him to get down. Dar ends up not doing anything and Alexander hits a handspring spinning kick then goes for a lumbar check for the win. Winner: Cedric Alexander
After the match, Gulak looks very disappointed with the results and bounces from the announce table.
We are reminded that 205 Live is going to run a few live shows and we see Mustafa Ali, Akira Tozawa, and Rich Swann talk about hitting the road. They make fun of Gulak as Dasha Fuentes enters to talk with Swann. She asks about his upcoming match against Tony Nese. Rich Swann says that he has dealt with lot adversity in his past, so he’s not worried about tonight. He’s gonna stay classy, San Diego, and take care of Tony Nese.
We are shown a recap of Gentleman Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick attacking Kalisto last week and then an interview with Kendrick from earlier today. The Brian Kendrick says that he is angry because he has had to fight for all his opportunities while Kalisto has been handed his.
We get a quick backstage promo of Gran Metalik saying that he looks forward to Kalisto's return and he plans to take out Kendrick and if needed, he will use Gallagher's umbrella to make him his personal piñata.
The Brian Kendrick vs. Gran Metalik: Metalik with a nice rope walking arm-drag to kick things off, followed by more rope walking into a dropkick. Kendrick is sent to the outside and Metalik hits a suicide dive that ends up hitting Gallagher. Metalik hits a springboard dropkick into the ring that sends Kendrick to the floor on the opposite side. Metalik charges for a baseball slide, but Kendrick avoids it and sends Metalik into the crowd. Metalik backs up and leaps over the barricade and hits a hurricanrana. Metalik goes up top the ropes for another try, but Gallagher pulls him down from behind.
Kendrick is able to take advantage and keep his opponent grounded. Metalik hits a nice powerbomb reversal into a pin, but Kendrick charges into the corner and he misses and he goes for a pin, but only a two count. Metalik goes for another quick pin, but no luck and gets an elbow under the jaw. Kendrick attempts a sliced bread #2, but doesn't get it. Kendrick hits a knee to Metalik's face and bounces his head into the ring post, and goes for more knee strikes. Kendrick locks in a captain's hook and Metalik is out of it. The referee calls for the bell. Winner: The Brian Kendrick
We get a quick recap of Nia Jax and Enzo’s new angle from RAW last night, then we see Gulak having a meeting with The Zo Train. He says that he wants Swann to be taken out to make things easier for him on Monday, but Ariya Daivari questions Drew trying to take over in the champ’s absence. Gulak tells Daivari that Amore will deal with him when he gets back, which quiets him down. Gulak makes the Justice League comparison and says that Ariya is their Wonder Woman. He initially doesn’t like that, but when Drew sells that it’s because of his fighting ability and fashion sense, he gets on board.
We get another Video Vignette of Hideo Itami coming to 205 Live soon.
The competitors for the next match makes their way down to the ring and we are ready for the main event.
Tony Nese (with Drew Gulak) vs. Rich Swann (with Cedric Alexander): Nese tries to take Swann down early, but pretty much a stalemate until Nese sweeps the legs out from under Swann on the apron. Swann recovers and he goes all the way up to the apron. He hits a Phoenix Splash from the second rope down to the floor. Gulak gets in Swann's face, but Alexander comes over to back him up a bit.

Swann hits a hurricanrana with Nese sitting on the top turnbuckle and goes for a pin, but only a two count. Nese hits a pump-handle slam and tries to go for a pin immediately, but only a two count. Back-and-forth strikes by both Superstar, with Swann hitting a few kicks to the face. Swann heads up to the top rope and hits the phoenix splash for the victory. Winner: Rich Swann
After the match, Gulak looks pretty bummed at ringside then he hits the siren on his megaphone and out comes Dar and Daivari. The Zo Train surrounds the ring and heads in to take out Swann and Alexander. Tozawa and Ali comes out and suddenly the numbers game is evened up. The Zo Train gets bounced quickly from the ring and head up the ramp. Gulak and Swann taunt each other and jaw at each other to end the show.
